Beijing Guo'an has sacked manager Jose Gonzalez after a middling start to the Chinese Super League (CSL) season. 

Beijing lost its Friday night match against Chongqing Lifan 1-0, the only goal coming six minutes into the match. 

Guo'an's management revolving door continues to spin. Gonzalez was hired in November, 2016, replacing interim coach Xie Feng, who replaced Alberto Zaccheroni, who was fired in May, 2016. The Beijing side finished fifth in the CSL last season, and is currently in seventh after losing five of its first 12 matches. 

The team's Chinese coaching staff will take over for now, Guo'an's board said in a statement. 

Guo'an won the CSL in 2009, and finished second in 2011 and 2014. It last participated in the Asian Champions League in 2015, when they finished fourth in the CSL.
